Escape on a ‘Novel Journey’ from the comfort of your seat Translink launches virtual Book Club in partnership with No Alibis
Translink has launched a new virtual book club, Novel Journeys, to celebrate the benefits of reading.
In collaboration with the independent bookstore “No Alibis”, Translink will propose a title each month through social media, with a virtual event taking place every three months with a panel of visitors.
The book club officially kicked off today with the announcement of Derry ~ Londonderry crime fiction writer Brian McGilloway as the first panel visitor to attend the virtual event in June.
The first proposed book was revealed as “Night Train to Lisbon” by Swiss author Pascal Mercier.
Speaking of the new initiative, Chris Conway, CEO, Translink, he said:
“We have always defended the idea of ’going back in time’ by doing something enjoyable on your trip or on your daily commute, such as reading.
“And with more people doing a good read to turn off, escape and take care of their mental well-being during the lockout, the Novel Journeys Book Club will help us stay connected with passengers and the general public.
“It will also be relaxing to be a place when restrictions are eased and more people can travel by bus and train again. We look forward to presenting a range of titles and authors in the coming months and having some great discussions with our new members of the book club. “
